We went for a drive yesterday, to Dunkirk NY and back home. We noticed some road changes en route Dunkirk since the last time we made this drive. A second lane (passing lane?) had been added for a short distance on NY Route 60 north of Sinclairville. That second lane had been added to both sides of the road. A roundabout had been added in Fredonia at Routes 60 and 20.
We stopped at Dunkirk Pier to check out photo opportunities. I captured a couple pictures of cormorants.

Since our last visit, enhancements had been made to the pier. Next time we visit, I will try to remember to take pictures of the pier. Until then, please click on the word “enhancements” and see the pier by watching the video in the article I shared.
There is a Tim Hortons not far from the Dunkirk Pier. We picked up lunch at the drive-through window and ate in an unpaved parking lot between Clarion Hotel and Tim Hortons. The parking lot overlooked Lake Erie. After lunch I took a couple pictures.

From Dunkirk we drove to the Barcelona Harbor Pier in Westfield NY. We drove around the pier but saw no opportunities for bird photography.
From Westfield we drove back to our home in Warren PA.
It was a chilly and windy, overcast day. Even so, it was good to get out of the house for a few hours.
